25 Self Defense secrets everyone needs to know
by Grandmaster Ted Gambordella
During my 46 years of teaching martial arts I have seen all the techniques that are used in Real World Self Defense and I know what will work in the street and I know what won’t work for the average person. The biggest problems with most self defense training programs are: 1. the techniques are too difficult to learn and too difficult for the average person to do. 2. They don’t work in the streets because the average person can’t do them in a stress or panic situation. For any self defense program to work for the average person it must meet the following requirements.
It must be easily learned
It must be totally effective for what is intended to do
It must stop the attack and allow you get away
It must not require too much strength, power or athletic ability
It must be something that can be done in a panic situation
It must not hurt the person doing it
It must be applicable for different situations
It must not be counter to your morals
It must not cause the attacker to want to continue the attack
It must be legal
Knowing these requirements most of the self defense programs out there fall short. They require too much time to learn, too much athletic ability, too much strength of coordination, and simply will not work in the Street.
I developed the Seven Second Self Defense System to solve all these requirements and to allow the woman to protect themselves and their families with the most effective techniques that I have learned from my 46 years of teaching Martial Arts.
I feel that there are 25 secrets that everyone should know for Self Defense. They are:
Self Defense is not getting in a fight. It is stopping the first attack long enough to get away, nothing else. It is not learning to fight with a deranged lunatic intend to killing you. It is stopping the initial attack, and getting away
Hitting the eyes, the throat and the groin will always stop the attack.
Being aware of your surroundings is ½ of any self defense program
“Being prepared” is your best defense technique
Don’t put yourself in a situation where there is no escape
Don’t let alcohol or drugs be a contributing factor requiring self defense.
Your life and health are worth more than your desire to not hurt the attacker
You don’t have to use muscle, speed or power to stop an attack
The first Seven Seconds of an attack determine whether you will live or die or be captured.
No one is going to help you so don’t expect it
Make your initial response overwhelming
Relax and breath during the attack and your defense
Use a weapon if you have one.
Never leave the scene of the original attack. Don’t go with them.
Do everything with bad intentions
Don’t get into a conversation with an attacker
Don’t give up, don’t stop defending until you are free
Don’t get caught by surprise or “sucker punched”
Confidence is created by proper training
You don’t have to be bigger or stronger to get away
The best way to escape a dangerous situation is not to get in it
Self Defense is very mental
When the technique is done right it works every time
Have an alternate plan if your first response does not work
Remember the 4 “P’s” of Self Defense. Plead, Pray, Punch, Puke.
I can elaborate for a few paragraphs for each of these points and I can include photos from my Seven Second Self Defense Program. I will even allow your readers to access the Seven Second Self Defense System Online for FREE. They can see the books and view the actual videos for FREE.
